Years ago 15g seemed to be the standard, Then changed to 16g. This is my first use of 17g, thinking that the thinner string wouldn't last very long, but I was pleasantly surprised, I now only use 16g. Can't beat the price and performance o OG-Sheep Micro Cameron Davis - Atlanta

Decent synthetic gut for overall use

This is a good synthetic gut for full syn gut or hybris s. You put this in the cross with rpm or something and u save like 7$ every time. And u dont feel guilty using top end poly like alu and rpm.

good string

I use this string for several years now and have not had any elblow or wrist discomfort. It adds spin to the ball as the string is not round and seems to have little edges on it. I play every day and restring about every 60 days I get good power also with control string tension 50 Overall happy with the string

Highly cost effective string, particularly as a cross string in poly hybrid. Good value and performance. Go to cross string for poly hybrids.

Great for the price

I love this string. I usually string my racquets with poly mains and Gosen Proform on my cross strings, and o love the durability and the feel. It is a very good string to string and for the money you can't beat it. I string a lot of the guys I play tennis with during the week of all levels, and they love it. I have used this string for at least ten years, and I have nothing bad to say about it.

Excellent Polyester String

This is an excellent polyester string. I don't play with it but I have several people that I string for that play with it and love it. It is very durable without feeling stiff as a board. I usually put it in the main strings and string the crosses with a multi-filament and it plays great.

Good cross string

Gosen makes a quality made in Japan single core synthetic gut comparable to prince synthetic gut and other well known synthetic guts. I use it as a cross string in a poly/synthetic gut hybrid. The white version is a bit stiffer than the natural colored one. So if you prefer a softer string, get the natural color. I get a bit more spin on my serve using the 17 vs the 16 gauge.

Good cross strings

I bought this reel solely for the purpose of using it as a cross string in a hybrid with a poly. They work great and I wouldn't hesitate to use them with any polys. I also use them for my customers who don't prefer a specific synthetic gut in their racquet. They are cheap, and very efficient as well! Great buy.

I really like this string. I has more pop than the several strings i have tried. I am a 60 yr old, 3.0 player that has had pretty major shoulder repairs including full rotator cuff tear. I am using a Head Youtek radical OS racquet strung at 55 lbs with Gosen comfort 17 string. I like the response, control and power without the shoulder strain i experienced with other racquet and sting combo's i have tried. Try it you'll like it!

I use a full bed and have found it offers excellent tension stability and retention over the full life of the string. Good grip on ball. Firmer feel than many sunthetic guts, but still very comfortable. Doesn't peel or fray. My favourite syngut. Excellent product.

Relatively Arm friendly Poly!

I love polys, but my 57 yo arm and shoulder can feel the shock that the monofilaments transmit. Enter Polylon Comfort, simple, combined smaller monofilaments dampen the harshness while maintaining enough stiffness to resist movement and still apply spin to the ball. Also reasonably priced. My "gold standard" for string for a few years now. Used full-bed on Dunlop Aerogel 100s, 90" @ 42-45 lb, and Dunlop AG Biomemetric 200 lites, 95" @ 45-53 lb.

Excellent string

This is one of the best polygon string. I've used this string for many years. It is inexpensive,lasts for long-time. It is an excellent string for players who break their string often. It is a little tricky to string it yourself

Last very long

If you're a string breaker, this string is for you. I string my own racquet. This string saves me time and money. I'm a 4.0 and hit flat. I find this string suits me well.
